Kaffebox – November 18 Box Preview: Fuglen Coffee Roasters

Now it’s finally time for the next KaffeBox, for some reason it hasn’t taken a long time at all receiving this package of coffees, so let’s go with the November month now when the September review is done. We have to catch up!!

So it didn’t take an as long time as last time, I can actually rewrite what was written at that time:

“the reason why it’s taken such a long time is that of Postnord (Swedish postal service) requires a declaration cost from the recipient and an added 21 days of delivery time. Just because Norway (KaffeBox is Norwegian) hasn’t joined the EU. I have to add that it’s very strange Sweden has no exception to our neighbors.”

This will be the 12th time for KaffeBoxyou can read the most previous post here. This month we will go back in time because Postnord kept the coffee for a month and I got it later.

The coffee comes from the Norwegian Oslo roastery Fuglen Coffee Roasters. This week we will review one coffee from Colombia and Kenya.

As usual, I start with an informative text about the coffees:

Fuglen Coffee Roasters, Oslo, Norway.

1) Augustin Trujillo Colombia
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2019-02-01

Origin: Colombia
Variety:  Caturra, Variedad Colombia
Producer: Augustin Trujillo
Region: Huila, Tarqui
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 900  masl.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Red plum, cacao & orange blossom.

Expectation: I actually think that this coffee will be spot on, I mean; the notes are perfect for me. Sometimes I just want a really typical Colombian and I really do hope that this one delivers exactly that.


2) AA Gichathaini Kenya
Personal cupping and recipe will be published 2019-02-03

Origin: Kenya
Variety:  Arabica SL 28 SL 34
Producer: Gikanda Farmers Co-op
Region: Nyeri
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1 700 – 1 900 masl.

Cupping notes from the coffee roastery:
Blackcurrant, rosehip, lavender, thick and juicy.

Expectation: The pure smell of this coffee was amazing, I’m getting some flashbacks from great coffee from Kenya. Yet again I think that Fuglen Coffee Roasters made some great decisions with this coffee as well!


Conclusion: I’ve never tried Fuglen Coffee Roasters before, it might have something to do with 2018 being their first year. At first sight, the bags art is really in my alley, it’s edgy, cool and has one of my favorite combinations of colors. Love it!

As usual, I always wish to give a respectful greeting to KaffeBox, which allows us to get together with coffee from all over Scandinavia so that we can see how we roast differently and at the same time give us the best coffee from there. As a Swede, I hope we support our wonderful neighbors and continue to subscribe.

If we battle these two coffees against each other I have to say that this might be the hardest pick for me yet; I love Colombian and I love Kenyan… And these sound like coffees I would buy in a second… So, I guess we’ll have to see haha!
